    It is foolish of users to install malware on their device I never said it wasn't. But Netflix created this mess and blamed their shortcomings on Android fragmentation, which seems to be the popular thing to do by companies having trouble developing an app.

    So your saying a company which had a perfectly functioning ios app for months simply hired inept android programmers?

    You never know. They could have done a quick cheap and dirty port and worked up from there applying bandaids as they went along.

    In the end, they handled it badly, and most users were forced to look at unofficial sources for a working app. That in turn creates easy malware targets.

    Or they could have wanted to make sure the app worked well for all devices before creating an even larger headache for themselves, right? I'm not understanding why the blame is going to the company when they had zero to do with the malware. Seems odd.

    Because many of those looking elsewhere found apps that worked, and I'm sure they still heard from them about it official or not. They handled it in a bad way, and now it's probably going to even worse for them as it could easily fuel a hacking scandal.

    I'll never understand why big corporations are always outed by indie developers who know that it's better to wide release and get feedback from everyone and not try to damage control from the start. Deploy to all notifying that it is beta and if you have a problem provide your phone model, Android version number, custom OS or not, etc.

    I blame all the impatient people who could not wait for an offical app to be released. i does not matter whether the app was "Working OK" on all devices or not, sometimes being impatient can pay off in the long run. Just my opinion tho.
